Event Information

Essex Summer of Art 2019


Jun 8, 2019 - Jun 15, 2019


Leigh on Sea is a vibrant contemporary town, centred around a very quaint fishing village. There are many independent shops and eateries for all our visitors to enjoy for a day out whilst viewing the beautiful thought provoking artworks we have to offer.

In our 22nd year we are delighted to welcome  c2c back on board for a second year, they are providing event space at Leigh and Chalkwell Stations.  Both promise to be a feast for the eyes of commuters and thousands of visitors to the Trail. On top of that we have 12 new venues and four home venues, from Chalkwell Esplanade all the way to Belfairs Woods. We are proud to introduce 11 new names meaning there will be 72 artists in 63 venues along the trail, exhibiting our widest range of genres to date including painting, spay art, embroidery, felt-making, sculpture, photography, textiles, jewellery, metalwork, stained glass, altered books, ceramics and installation art.

For budding young artists, the trail is organising for Infants and Juniors a competition LEIGH LANDSCAPES for many local schools . For the first time we are inviting GCSE and A Level students to enter the 2019 art trail schools competition. The winner from each entering school will be displayed in HSBC Bank in Leigh Broadway during the art trail.

The overall winner will be select during the Art Trail week and the prize will be their own solo venue in the 2020 Art Trail.
